Q: O que significa doom?

Q: O que significa all your doom?
A: This is a deep excerpt indeed. Though without context it's a bit hard to pinpoint it's exact meaning. In fact, without context it can be interpreted in a number of ways.

"Doom" has a few definitions:

1. destruction; downfall; ruin
2. extinction; annihilation; death
3. [Archaic] (in Christian belief) Judgment Day; The Last Judgment; doomsday


With definition #1:

"So consumed in all your doom" can mean obsessed with destruction.
Though I don't really know how this follows with the next sentence.

With definition #2:

"So consumed in all your doom" can mean being obsessed with death (like when we're going to die and what happens after).

Adding the next sentence "trying hard to fill the emptiness", could mean:

So consumed with death that people (in the context) are trying hard to make answers for what happens once they die (e.g. Heaven & Hell, eternal life, afterlife etc).

With definition #3:

"So consumed in all your doom" can mean being obsessed with judgement day (in Christian belief).

So adding all sentences, this can mean:

People (in this context) are delirious because they're so obsessed with judgment day and the following afterlife, that they try to find (irrational) answers for what happens after death.


Given the lack of context, definition #3 could most likely be suitable. If not #3 then #2.
